Back To School Night August 13th

Our Back to School Night will look a little different this year. Classroom Teachers will be emailing families directly with a brief overview of their classrooms and a little information about how back to school will look. Teachers are then inviting families to join their child's teacher in a virtual meeting at either 6:00, 6:30, or 7:00. The links for those meetings will be sent from the teacher.


Pioneer Elementary will post on their school website, pe.dcsdk12.org, at approximately 5 pm some links to presentations for families to view some procedures for the 20-21 school year. For example, procedures for morning arrival, dismissal, what lunch will look like, etc. Pioneer Elementary will also have linked three virtual meetings so families can choose a time that is convenient for them to meet with our administration and specials teachers.

Important Resources For Families For Public Assistance

  • Here is information from the Douglas County Department of Human Services on assistance available for needs such as food, child care, and other financial support.
  • Here is a guide for parents on when to consider leaving children at home alone. Here is the Spanish version.

Welcome to a new school year! Pioneer Education Foundation "PEF" serves as Pioneer's Parent/Teacher organization. We are a chapter of DCEF. Our goal is to enhance the quality of education for our students by raising funds that benefit our students and staff.

Raise funds the socially-distant way! We are having a spirit "night" with Papa John's that lasts ALL DAY on Thursday, August 27th. A percentage of all sales from us will be donated back to Pioneer! If you turn in the flyer (that will be posted on the event page), or just mention Pioneer, we will get credit. Also, tell them your teacher's name and the class with the most participation will earn free pizza for their amazing teacher! Papa John’s is also now offering a NO-CONTACT delivery option (info posted on event page). Thanks so much for supporting our school!
